Dwyane Wade's ex wants latest legal fight kept secret

Dwyane Wade‘s ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches doesn’t want you to read about the never-ending saga of her divorce from the Chicago Bulls star in Chicago Inc.

So she’s asking a judge to deal with the rest of her case against her 13th divorce attorney in private.

Funches is suing lawyer Brian Hurst, arguing he botched her $5.125 million-plus divorce settlement. But her latest attorney Thomas Gooch III says Inc.’s “untruthful” coverage of the case is making it impossible for Funches to get “an unbiased jury pool.”

Gooch is now asking Judge Martin Agran to seal the case to prevent the case from being reported on, and to issue a gag order preventing either side from speaking to the media. In recently filed court papers he accused the Tribune of making “libelous and untrue” statements about Funches, though he did not spell out what he believes is wrong and on Friday declined to speak to Chicago Inc.
